My usual yarn “formula”, simply estimating that I’ll get 3.33 ripple rows per ounce, served me very well on this blanket. Look at how little yarn I had left!
– For comparison, the ‘large’ ball of mint green weighs about two ounces. –
Other Yarns Worth Noting: The pretty variegated came from Karen of MA and I used about 4 ounces of Caron Premium ‘Rose’ from Ann of OK. I agree with that yarn’s label. . . it IS “Softer and Brighter”! lol.
And the lighter rose is the last of the Three Pounds we unraveled from this bobble-covered crochet sweater, which I found at Sal’s back in 2012. – $3.00
I may have lost track, but I know that I’ve made at least four other ripples with this particular yarn:
‘Bobble-less One’ – #44 of 2012 – My, my, but this is a Pretty One! –
‘A Jacob’s Ladder’ – #50 of 2012 – Could be called “My One and Only Jacob’s Ladder”, lol.
‘Desert Sunset’ – #10 of 2014
‘A Little Ripple’ – #15 of 2014
The flowers that the colors in this ripple bring to my mind aren’t usually called Carnations. They’re Pinks, with the same serrated edges, smaller and often clove-scented. But calling a ripple ‘Pinks’ probably wouldn’t make you think about flowers. lol.
What a beautiful blanket! Love the design. Hmmmm, the variegated looks a bit familiar!
Thank You, Karen. I love it too!!
(shaking head at self) Can’t believe I forgot to make a note about that yarn. So much so, I actually went and double checked ‘Karen’s box’ to be sure that I’d used your variegated, not a lookalike from old stash. lol.
I’m so glad you caught my omission. I love giving credit to my dear fairies! 🙂
Off I go to edit. . .
